BigDataCamp Silicon Valley @HadoopSummit 2011

BigDataCamp is an unconference for users of Hadoop and related technologies to exchange ideas in a loosely distributed format. Led by CloudCamp's Dave Nielsen, attendees are encouraged to share thoughts in open discussions with pre-defined and majority-vote topics, including best practices in application development and advanced analytics.  

Data engineers, enterprise architects, developers, analysts, data mining and business intelligence professionals are encouraged to attend and mix with other members of the community.

BigDataCamp takes place the night before Hadoop Summit 2011 and we encourage all attendees to join us for a lively discussion, simple food, and a frosty beverage or two. For more information and to register, please visit:
